Submitted by Ham Ham
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.

Game Features:

- Over 110 real tanks, aircraft, and naval units with realistic models. Each tank/aircraft has a real fully detailed information about it. On every game version, new units are avaliable.
- Over 100 countries avaliable to be captured/destroyed.
- Epic battles.
- Reallistic Air Combat.
- Nuke your enemies!
- or build Anti-Missile shields towards your nation to prevent it.
- Average AI for computer players that allows begginers to get learn how to play.


Thanks for playing.

Thanks the Hive Workshop staff for hosting the forum.

OPEN SOURCE
I'm not a selfish person. Since Blizzard extended the max filesize limit to 8mb, map is no longer protected. You can modify this map as you wish, or use the systems included on this map on a map of yours, but dont forget to give me credits for all systems, and read the comment file explaining the rules of how to edit/republish this map. As long you follow these rules, you don't need to ask me authorization.


Screenshoots

Fuck imageshack! They have deleted my pics! I will upload new ones soon.



Important Note about AI

If you want to play with AI, dont use more than 2 computer players or game will lag like hell (Blame wc3 engine!). That happens because this map has epic battles with hundreds of units on each side, and when an AI orders too many units to advance/move/retreat, game lags, and theres no way to fix it. But I can assure you: If you play on solo against 2 computer players, the game is still funny and can last very long.

    It's good to be back in Hive after a long vacation.... Hey this is the final version? I'll wait this map in SC2... Can i ask if i equip a Mortar/Grenades/Rocket launchers to a Soldier, do it fire mortar automatically if they engage a battle to a certain enemy like the flamethrower? I'm not yet testing 1.34... I just got back yesterday...

    About the questions related to WW3 NS version in Sc2

    1) This is NOT the final version yet. I wan't to add more things yet. If you have ANY suggestions about new units/abilities/etc. please post it!

    2) Don't be so confident about the SC2 version of this map because of many reasons:
    - I think that modelers will take a LOT of time to start making modern tanks, helicopters, chips, and aircraft for sc2 (Unless people can find a way to convert .mdx into the sc2 models)
    - My current computer can't run SC2. I actually have a Pentium 4 2.8ghz, 512mb Ram, Ge-ForceMX4000 graphics card. I do aim a Pentium Quad Core, 4gb Ram, and Ge-Force 9800GT. I will not able to buy it before July or August.
    - After I finally can play SC2, I will take some.. A LOT of time to find out how his editor works.

    So, just keep suggestions coming up. There are no plans of the works in WW3: Nuclear Assault (previewed name for this map in SC2. It might change) start before mid 2011.



    About the next version:
    For now, the only new idea I have is the Nuclear Briefcase. A item that can be carried by terrorists, droped in an enemy country, and detonated. It's like a Stealth Nuke. This will be 3 times more expensive than a ICBM. Also, I do plan working in the infantry again. The unique infantry will be resotored (and will cost less, so people don't mass tanks), and I will double the cost of ICBMs, so they can't be massed.

    Post your suggestions for 1.35

    Very Interesting. I'd like to make some other questions and suggestions:
    Questions:
    -Is the Chain Quest completed? If not,in what version you expect to be ready?
    -Which variants will be on the Stryker APC?
    -There will be other avaiable variants in other tanks/aricrafts?[BMP-3,AH-1 Cobra,etc...]
    -Is the Napalm Bomb working proppely now?
    -That General stuff that was in one of the older versions[can't remember wich],will you add it again?

    Suggestions:
    -Other kind of bombs in the Bombs Factory[For example Dirty Bombs :p]
    -Field officers[Gives morale and can send neaby troops to attack a targeted area]
    -Strategic points [I know,it's alot of work but,could be useful.For example: A player's convoy is passing throug a "Choke Point",than has chances to miss other units that are on higher places,reduced speed if it's near a country or forest].

    I noticed wrong about the tooltip of Challenger II tank. Could you check it and fix it at the next version? And try changing the M249 SAW machine gun of the Russians, because only British and Americans have that machine gun.

    Anyway I have a suggestion, create a new weapon at the Supply depot, FGM-18 Javelin, which is an American-modified rocket launcher that tracks tanks with a great range but has only 1 charge instead of 5 like the rocket launcher item.

    So far I can't see any problem except for the tooltip one. Continue your map and I wish it will be better in the next versions.:thumbs_up:

    If you wish to get a good processor get the Intel Core i5 or i7 series, they're better than the Quad-Core for many reasons.

    1. Uses less material which means costs less
    2. Has better speeds and overclocking.
    3. Just about the same price as the Quad Core but with more features (Hyper-threaded, Turbo Boost etc...)

    A smarter AI which doesn't spam infantry that goes 'round in circles, stronger bombers to drop nukes, diplomacy to negotiate truce and the like, a more diverse pallete of buildings, conventional planted bombs (maybe :confused:) etc.

    Post suggestions for 1.35 is simple lol.

    Make more units and fix up some grammars and locations (honestly I never get why you placed Quebec instead of Ottawa for Canada)

    Ok well here's a list of units you may want to add (or replace)

    -Canada does have Leopard 2 MBTs to you know so why not add them?

    -Japan has a prototype stealth fighter called the ATD-X by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mitsubishi_ATD-X

    -This sounds dumb but Plasma-based weapons, apperently Boeing is doing research on that right now. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plasma-based_weaponry

    -Since both USA and Russia has there own "Space Forces" maybe there could be a aircraft capable of destroying satellites easily than having to spend it on ICBM and play a guess of Where's is that satellite.

    -No railguns cause I've been doing research on the railguns and as fun as it sounds to have them they say that the Railguns are only ready in 2020-2025 and since this is 2012 it ain't gonna work...

    -However since there is a age advancement thing going on in the map maybe there is a possibility of placing in new weapons when X date has passed.

    -New Event the reconstruction of project Babylon http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project_Babylon Project Babylon is a supergun that was meant to fire anywhere in the world, there is a group that tries to reconstruct it and probably succeeded. So who ever gets to the Babylon site first controls the cannon (although the thing is immobile so defenses are needed lol.)

    Talking about space forces, actually I don't know how USa, but in USSR in late 80s they actually managed to create a lasers weapons for astronauts. Those were one time use and could be used only in vacuum, but still, those were the only hanguns that can be used in space. So maybe you should make some kind of anti-space station space station (well maybe unlockable by quests or something)?

    What about the Skynet Project? Just kidding xD. Now serious,maybe all countrys need a cheap and fast recoinnaissance aircraft (like UAVs or something),because even the spy satellite is a little expensive and slow.

    Redoing the triggers redoing the terrain will take time in Sc2. Stats work a little differently in Sc2.

    Making a Custom UI will take some time if ham ham chooses to make one.

    yea... i see your point :| ah well i was just hoping for to much to soon i guess ;\

    -However since there is a age advancement thing going on in the map maybe there is a possibility of placing in new weapons when X date has passed.

    I just did a little bit of reserch and it appears railguns have been though about as early as ww2 and could have been made... just the power source required ws not feasible at the time (enought o power half of chicago) however... i am not saying you are wrong tau, your most likely alot more accurate then me (seen you post alot of things they make sense :thumbs_up:) but with todays tech there are some prototypes around i would suspect... so you could have very limited versions until 2020-25 like much more expensive and then down to a more reasonable price later on... just an idea

    By the way people, haven't you forgot this map is open source? If you want, you can mod it whatever way you like.
